Drinks, snacks and lunch

Drinks - Children can only have milk or water at school, we will provide these, you do not need to send them in.

 

Snacks - If your child attends for morning or afternoon sessions, they do not need to bring any food with them - we provide healthy snacks.

 

Lunch - If your child attends full time, they will need to bring a nut free, healthy packed lunch every day, which includes a bottle of water. Please see the below document for more information.

 

Uniform

Your child will need to wear uniform at Nursery, this includes: 

  • White polo shirt
  • Black or dark grey skirt, trousers, leggings or jogging bottoms
  • Highlands green jumper or cardigan
  • Comfortable shoes, appropriate for outdoor play (no open toes or sandals)
  • Highlands green book bag
  • A spare change of clothes to be kept in school

 

You can purchase some of these items with a logo through school, please see the price list list below. 

 

Our school uniform shop is usually open every Wednesday after school (with additional days in the first few weeks of September) however due to current circumstances the shop is not operating.

 

We are working on setting up a safe system to purchase uniform again from September and will be able to give you more information then.

 

Parentmail

 

We will communicate information to you through electronic letters.

 

They may include important information about upcoming events such as parent workshops, non uniform days or trips.

 

Please make sure to download the ‘Parent Mail’ app to receive these letters straight to your phone once your child starts school.

 

 

 

Evidence Me

 

We use ‘Evidence Me’ to make observations of your child’s learning at school.

 

We can send these observations to you, so that you can keep up to date with your child’s progress.

 

You can also send photos, videos and comments about their learning at home back to us.

 

Please make sure to download the ‘Evidence Me’ app to receive and send updates on your phone once your child starts school.
